Cancer patients given hydroxychloroquine combination for Covid-19 infection more like to die, study findsFrom CNN's Jacqueline HowardHydroxychloroquine sits on a shelf at Rock Canyon Pharmacy in Provo, Utah, on Wedneday, May 20. George Frey/AFP/Getty Images
New data on cancer patients who were sick with Covid-19 finds those treated with the controversial combination of hydroxychloroquine and azithromycin were more likely to die than those who weren’t.Early data published in the medical journal The Lancet on Thursday showed that patients treated with the two drugs, once strongly promoted by President Trump, were nearly three times as likely to die within about a month. The researchers found no significant increase in risk for patients given either drug alone.
The researchers from across North America and Europe looked at data on 928 cancer patients who also were infected with Covid-19 in March and April. Overall, 121 patients total — or 13% — died during the study period and within 30 days of being diagnosed with Covid-19.
"This is early and evolving data, and more time and analysis will be needed to confirm and expand on these findings," Dr. Jeremy Warner, who worked on the research and is an associate professor of medicine and biomedical informatics at Vanderbilt University Medical Center, said in a written statement on Thursday.
"Right now, we’re working to quickly get information about why some patients with cancer become infected with the SARS-CoV-2 virus and identify the factors that affect disease severity and death," Warner said."We're also interested in the effects of treatments that are being used to treat patients with cancer who have COVID-19."
Other studies have also found a higher risk of death among coronavirus patients treated with the drugs. One is an antibiotic and the other is a malaria drug also approved for inflammatory diseases such as lupus. Read more: CNN Breaking News »
